obama has a leg to stand on when it comes to entitlements. in the last four years he created a giant new entitlement that will put the onerous taxes on the middle class. i think he has to keep president obama on defense all night. i've talked to a lot of people and they say the entire debate is about romney. romney needs to play to win. while president obama needs to play not to lose. as long as he can keep him on defense, which he can. the facts are on romney's side. i talked to a senior advisor and just saw the candidate, he is calm and in great spirits ready to go. >> bob: that is what they always say before debates. if you abandon your own vice president medicare proposals? >> dana: they answered that. >> bob: how so? >> andrea: i don't think he will let himself get trapped in the details, bob. he will take it to the president. the facts are on his side. all he has to do is bring up the promises that president obama made. all the promises that he hasn't kept. boston you want to be president, you have to come up with details, too. >> what about skating through on promising to bring do
township the clash that will help decide whether he gets another four years, president obama stayed mum. leaving the heavy lifting yet again today to former president bill clinton in new hampshire, who made the case this is a choice about the next four years. >> the economy is not fixed. i am telling you, nobody can fix this much damage in four years. but the president's economic plan is better in the short run, better in the long run. >> reporter: the president made the opposite case in 2009. vowing to get the economy fixed in three years or this would be in his words a one-term proposition. which is why senator marco rubio told fox he believes the president will be vulnerable tonight if romney focuses on this point. >> we can't afford four more years of barack obama. we can barely aforfour more months. if we have four more years of president obama we can't wait four years for the economy to start growing. >> reporter: that may be resonating as the race tightening again in latest nbc news, "wall street journal" poll. romney is trailing by three points, within the margin of error. 46% o
years, barack obama suddenly walked out on the stage and said, oh, my gosh, i'm black, i can't take on this white guy. look, whether in sports, music, acting or politics, some days you just don't have a the juice, but we squeezed out what we could from the debate and i'll offer my humble, but absolutely accurate assessment of the event. first of all, here is mitt romney countering what the obama campaign is saying about his tax proposal. >> i've got five boys, i'm used to people saying something that's not always true, but keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. >> let me just say this was a brilliant rhetorical device on the part of mitt romney for a couple of reasons, first of all, by invoking the story of his sons, it really brought a sense of connection to mitt romney as a father. he's raised kids. he is more like us at least in that regard. countering one of the great criticisms of mitt romney that he doesn't understand the rest of people. that showed a connection. the fact that his boys had told him, let's just say funny business like everybody does to thei
obama and mitt romney. the two men have not been on the same stage together in nearly eight years. tens of millions of people will tune in to watch the keanes go head-to-head for the first time. tell your friends 52.8 million people watched the first debate between senator john mccain and then senator obama four years ago. 80% of the country's adults reported watching at least some of the presidential debates in 2008. >>> enough of the real news, let's huddle up around the water cooler to get you ready for the rumble in the rockies. aides to president obama said he's focusing on looking calm. romney's team says it is loading up the candidate with zingers, one-liners aim the at the president. the campaign told "the new york times" last week, quote, mr. romney's team has concluded that debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers that he's memorized and has been practicing on aides since august. the zinger strategy apparently includes luring president obama into appearing smug or evasive in his responses, especially on questions of the economy. this is
buried for the last four years during which president obama was in the white house while campaigning in iowa. paul ryan did not miss the opportunity to seize on biden's choice of words. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. of course the middle class has been buried. they're being buried by regulations. they're being buried by taxes. they're being buried by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> the romney campaign also chimed in on twitter writing agree with joe biden. the middle class has been buried the last four years which is why we need a change in november, #can'tafford4more. >>> later that today in asheville, north carolina vice president biden clarified that the middle class was buried by the policies that romney and ryan supported. see if you're convinced by that recovery. >>> also yesterday, a video was relesioned by the daily caller, featuring then senator barack obama speaking to a group of african-american religious leaders in 2007. they are b

is ultimately energy independence and note under the obama, production at the highest level in 20 years, as for, i don't know what somebody's laughing about. if you want to-- >> i'm laughing because it came on private land, but not public land, okay. >> but we can have that debate it's not really that meaningful to the point you're making. >> let's get on. >> i think the issue is here, that the strategic petroleum reserve is for when we have very unusual circumstances, when bush did it in '91 during the iraq invasion, when clinton did it in 2000, it happened, for a specific situation in 2004. when george w. bush did in 2005, because of katrina. when obama did it, a year ago, it was because of libya. and in each case, price the went down significantly. i don't think the obama administration will do it now because it will look too political and might actually be political if they were to do it, but i would note that gas prices are starting to come down from where they had been and romney, who is blaming obama for the increase in gas prices is not giving obama any credit for the gas prices actuall
plans for next year. and someone here says, this is why. >> you know the phrase you always use, obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars, guess what? yes, we do in one regard. we want to let that trillion dollar tax cut expire so the middle class doesn't have to bear the burden of all of that money going to the super wealthy. >> so, are promises of massive tax hikes, taxing the jobs market? hi, everyone, i'm brenda buttner, this is bulls and bears, here they are, bulls and bears this week, gary b smith, tobin smith, jonas max ferris, along with julian epstein and larry, talk about future tax hikes, holding back a jobs recovery? >> that's right, that's right, brenda. well, you know, certainly for consumers that are work being that have 401(k) plans they may be feeling more confident these days, but their employers don't share the optimism. they're worried what's ahead and what's ahead are future tax increases, for small business owners still, these are people that own delis and dry cleaners and pave your driveways, not fat cats and million fairs and billionaires, they'
w. bush did in 2005, because of katrina. when obama did it, a year ago, it was because of libya. and in each case, price the went down significantly. i don't think the obama administration will do it now because it will look too political and might actually be political if they were to do it, but i would note that gas prices are starting to come down from where they had been and romney, who is blaming obama for the increase in gas prices is not giving obama any credit for the gas prices actually going down. >> all right. jonas? >> i think that the government could make money trading this thing, and in charge of the spr. and sell at $100 a barrel and announce you're going to drill in the public lands and-- i'm saying that's not the job of government and moreover a political thing wouldn't become a thing it make money, it'd be to drive prices down before the election. and for the iran situation, that's probably what it's for an old-fashioned concept we don't use it because people don't like $4 gas, gas is going to get more expensive every year because there's less of it. get use t
buried the last four years. >> reporter: republicans jumped on that, buried by obama? >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of theitis. >> reporter: that's the kind of zinger sure to be heard at debate number one. i'm steve handelsman, nbc news, denver, colorado. >> and of course we'll have complete all-day coverage leading up to tonight's first 2012 presidential debate and then be sure to stay tuned for the main event, that starts at 9:00 p.m. eastern time right here on msnbc, the place for politics. >>> last night on "the ed show" president obama's senior campaign adviser, robert gibbs, describes what he hopes to hear at tonight's presidential debate. take a listen. >> i hope the moderator gives governor romney a chance to do what paul ryan said he didn't have time to do and that is explain how they pay for a $5 trillion tax cut. as you pointed out, ed, it is a time problem that is vexing in this budget. it's a math problem.
years, will note this, accent is abcush. this is not the way obama talks. it is not the way he has talked in scores of peaches i have watched him give, or public appearances viseen him make. this is a put-on. that's one. second issue, he is telling a predominantly black audience something very clear-- the federal government doesn't like you because you are black -- [overlapping dialogue] >> sean: that's what he is saying. >> they don't like you because you are black. that's the theme from front to back, from beginning to endful they don't like you because of your skin can remember. that's a shockingly -- a nasty think this to say, a devicive thing to say, in the case of katrina, it's untrue. at the moment he utters those words, you are getting short-changed in the katrina reconstruction funds. the government had pledged $110 billion, two weeks before this speech, the bush administration gave the katrina-affected areas $7 billion with no strings attached. he was a sitting senator. he knew that and he said that anything -- anyway. >> sean: he is saying they don't care as much about y
this debate was roughly 70 million. more than watched mccain and obama four years ago irks as storied as that race seem to be and the number of people who watched the republican convention and watched him give his speech was around 20 million something. gwen: way more than were able to watch the president the day polling the debate when he seemed to get his voice back on the stump and democrats watching said who's that guy? >> his line was who was mitt romney last night. i don't recognize that mitt romney. but they also didn't recognize that barack obama. >> mitt romney had to be aggressive with the president and also had to remain likable. ben is, in -- again, in looking at those polls -- gwen: a temperament issue. >> and they're in conflict. because when you're aggressive you may not be that attractive. and that was something the president was worried about. so in these insta polls, the cbs one, romney's numbers do you care about a person like me was 40 -- 30 before the debate. after the debate it was in the 60's. so he made up ground with undecided voters on this key question of do
've written about this year is how the obama campaign is adopting these experimental methods to measure the effect of their mail and online ads and tv ads. it's more complicated and more expensive but it's a way of trying to break out of the line solely on the polls and focus groups that try to ask voters to imagine in this sort of artificial setting what would change their mind, and instead introduce them to information in the real world to believe they are basically being examined and see if it actually does change their mind. so that is a one next way of using these experimental techniques to see what really does move the voters and get out of the sort of the artificial setting of the focus groups alone. >> host: on that note with the obama campaign, since they have had four years ago time to study and now they have for years later, is there any innovative technique they're using now, any more that you can't -- >> guest: the programs are really the thing and they have been used in small narrow ways by some institutions, the afl-cio, emily's list over the years in certain states in th

(laughter) >> stephen: no! no! no thank you. >> oh, it's a tender candy scented with rose water. >> stephen: rose water? oh, that does sound delightful! i shall try one! oh! (laughter) oh, it is scrumptious. >> ha ha ha! now you're mine! come join my harem. >> stephen: no, no! you've got to fight ottoman delicacy with an anti-ottoman delicacy. a croissant. yes, the croissant, created in 1683 to celebrate the victory over the ottomans at the battle of vienna. its crescent shape marks the moon upon your plant. >> no, not the light and flaky pastry of my people's darkest hour! >> stephen: b gone, turk! >> no! (cheers and applause) >> stephen: oh-- thank you. thank you, congressman louie gohmert for warning us against the ottoman menace. but remember, sir, you're from texas. obama's probably also reviving the empire of montezuma and his as tech warr
the obama campaign has this year is a major advance. part of the problem with the way that people have tested messages historically is that you either have a poll that asking somebody who they support, and it they wills them a bunch of information. you see if moves or you ask somebody directly. if i told you romney hadn't paid taxes for x number of years make it more or less likely to vote for them. some people fell you would they move. people telling you they would move is a pretty sort of con ject yiewrl thing. i wouldn't cognitively trust anybody that would do under the hypothetical scenario. they may or may not already know. that's part of the problem with the polls they ask people if you knew of a piece of information you may or may not already know. or in focus groups you bring somebody in and so you a dozen people and show them an ad and you ask them again did everybody change their mind. you're purchasing somebody to change their mind and they're being forced to watch an ad they might tune out. using the experimental things that the obama campaign has. they randomly assign mail
, the status quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. we're not going to have four more years of barack obama. >> the road to the white house runs through ohio, that's why the candidates have made more than 30 visits here already. the fact is that in this huge country, the election will be decided in just a few places like this. this is the most expensive presidential race ever. the two parties have already spent more than $1 billion in all, much of it focused on just eight of america's 50 states. over a third of the money has been spent on political adverts aimed at swaying undecided voters, roughly a million people, around 3% of those who plan to vote. >> maybe instead of attacking others on taxes, romney should come clean on his. >> trying to reach these vital voters, the two campaigns have spent $116 million on tv ads in ohio alone, most attacking their opponent. >> fewer americans are working today than when president obama took office. >> but if the air war is important, the ground war could be important. an emotional opening of the latest obama campaign field
impact. but we have had a chance now, 3 1/2 years of a president obama administration. you either love it, hate it or you are indifferent. now he has a record. back in 2007, i think that we put him under the microscope -- as we should any candidate, particularly him because we knew so little about him. he wasn't in the public eye for a long time. now, though, i would expect the people are making decisions, are you better off than you were 3 1/2 years ago? is the world safer? do you think we are going in the right direction? those type of questions. his record has a far greater impact than when he said in 2007, but i could be wrong. >> sure, sure. i agree with you. i don't think this particularly speech is definitive, but it's a reminder obenghazi, for example, you have the same pattern of dishonesty in the obama white house that you had in the speech from 2007. the amazing thing is the degree to which the elite media tries to avoid all of this. they didn't cover it in twint 07. they don't want to cover it in 2012. but have you seen literally in 2 1/2 weeks aircraft pattern of breath-takin
admits that in the last four years, that's the obama years, the middle class has been buried. highest price of gasoline in the history. hits the middle class. the unemployment rate hits the middle class. the debt being piled up, hits the middle class. but then he goes on to say something which is frankly nutty. no republican is proposing a tax increase in the middle class. none, zero. there are no proposals to raise taxes on the middle class. who is proposing to raise taxes? obama? who has a whole range of tax increases in obamacare? obam a. biden pivots and charges the republicans with something totally false, after having atd mitted that in the time he was vice-president, the middle class was buried. i agree with paul ryan's characterization. buried by tax, buried by unemployment and buried by reg iewdle, it's buried by debt and a variety of government actions, under obama and biden. i am sure that he wishes he hadn't said it. but joe biden in that case, was sharing an insight into what's happened. >> greta: two-part question. what is the one question president obama doesn't want to
it is the next four years will be better than the last four years. >> reporter: the obama campaign admits it needs a change in strategy for the next two debates. president obama held back from attacking romney during the debate but that chang when he returned to the campaign trail. >> i almost got to watch out. >> reporter: the president attacked romney's plan to cut subsidies to pbs and his position was so different from what he said in the past he didn't recognize who he was debating. >> whoever was on stage last night doesn't want to be held accountable for what mitt romney has been saying in the last year. >> obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. yes we do. >> reporter: biden said the super wealthy needs to pay more. romney says that will kill jobs. another wild card in this race comes later this morning. the government releases its september unemployment report. experts see that jobless rate rising from the current 8.1%. >> we'll be talking about that a little later. susan mcginnis in washington. thank you so much. word this morning that a rare but deadly meningi

obama is going to accuse romney of four more years of bush and romney is going to accuse obama of four more years of obama. is that what's going to happen tonight in. >> we know this and everybody on your panel, they're all smart guy, they all know that every presidential contest is a contest for the future. and what president obama is saying is everything's fine, we should continue on the same course. governor romney happens to very clearly disagree with that. and the message that he has for these voters is that we can and will take a new course under romney and that new course will have more economic growth. >> this is an assembled intellect of awesome proportions, probably nor since thomas jefferson dined alone. >> i feel like i'm bringing down the batting average on this team. >> you never do. let me ask you this. i was very surprised yesterday to learn that mitt romney was talking about tax policy to a local denver, colorado station where he essentially unveiled a new program with more details. he said his 20% tax cut would only allow $17,000 worth of deductions. if you have $17,0
it in front of 40 million people. [ laughter ] >> obama: four years ago we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost the auto industry was on the brink of collapse the financial system has frozen up and because of the resilience and determination of the american people we have begun to fight our way back. we have seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back and house has begun to rise. but we all know we still have a lot of work to do. so the question is not where we have been but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed towards the wealthy and roll back regulations, that we'll be better off. i have a different view. i think we have got to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure we're helping small businesses and companies here in the united states, that we take some of the money we're saving as we wind down tw
to his critics. the scary thing about president obama, four years in office and he doesn't listen. >> adam, want to go to you for the last word. >> well, mitt romney's had a lot of critics, you have to listen when it's in your own party as gerri was saying and the republican party was like, it's like some sort of weird sort of thing, and personality and-- >> and everyone agrees. >> i don't disagree, charlie. >> let me tell you everyone agrees that mitt romney played the rope-a-dope game perhaps too long and he did come out fighting and i think it reinvigorated a lot of people aen certainly should have an impact on the money. how much we'll find out. by the way, guys, did you see this? >> this is a man who has shown throughout his life, a life of integrity, a life of honor, a man with a moral compass, with a bed rock of principles. >> we need you, we need you. >> so who do we need? >> cavuto, of course. and his all-star coverage of next week's vice-presidential debate. now, it's going to kick off at 4 p.m. eastern on the fox news channel and then 8 p.m. on the fox business network
prepare for the big showdown tonight, a speech president obama gave five years ago may be making some political trouble for him. we get the story from tara at the white house. >> conservative media outlets build it as a bomb shell tape. a 2007 campaign speech where then senator obama criticizes the bush administration's response to hurricane katrina. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> speaking to a prodominantly black audience, obama suggested they were holding recovery money. after other major disasters, the government cut through the red tape to provide aide. >> you are part of the american family. >> conservative commentators say the president's speech was racially charged and devicive. it did not cause controversy when it was covered five years ago and the senior adviser to mitt romney's campaign was asked whether it is relevant to the current election. >> voters have to make that up. they have to look at that video and make up their mind on that individually.
years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. >> reporter: president obama and governor romney have been battling it out on the stump, barnstorming the swing states and flooding the air waves with increasingly negative ads. >> obama quietly ended work requirements for welfare. you wouldn't have to work and wouldn't have to train for a job. >> reporter: in the cross hairs, on the stump and in the obama ads -- >> 47% of people -- >> reporter: that infamous tape of romney seeming to write off millions of americans. >> who believe that they're entitled to health care and food. >> reporter: but astonishingly in the debate tonight, those comments never came up. obama declined an opportunity, or simply whiffed, when given the chance, when he was asked a broad question on the role of government. he ended up talking about, well, something. >> in the middle of the civil war, abraham lincoln said, let's help to finance the transcontinental railroad. >> reporter: romney's response was clear, practiced and forcibly delivered. >> we have a responsibility
year showed that we need to. tavis: you reference present obama and governor romney. tomorrow night, wednesday, the first of these four debates, three between mr. romney and mr. obama. tomorrow is the first that we will see them on the same stage. in advance of that debate tomorrow night, yesterday in "the wall street journal" mr. romney had a piece. the piece was titled "a new course for the middle east," but he raises some domestic issues, . "in recent years, president obama has allowed our leadership to atrophy. our economy is stuck in a recovery that is clearly deserves the name. our national debt has risen to record levels. our military tested by a decade of war is facing cuts based to that -- thanks to the budgetary games played by the white house. our values have been misunderstood by a president who thinks that weakness will win favor with our adversaries. by failing to maintain the elements of our influence and by stepping away from our allies, president obama has heightened the prospect of conflict and instability. he does not understand that an american policy that lets r
us there. we have had for years of president obama. he has not been able to deliver. we cannot afford four more years. i had my mind made up, but this confirms it. i appreciate the opportunity to see the debate and comment on it. >> thank you very much. next is a telephone call from kevin in a staten island and is also an independent. >> the debate was good, and i enjoyed it. they gave me perspective of both individuals and the path of a mean to take. just like a previous caller said, we do not know what his plan is. it is like "the art of war." if we are going to vote for you, tell me what you are going to do. a good leader informs his soldiers of what they are going to do and how they will go about a plan of attack. you do not to say go into the ravine while meanwhile the enemy is sitting on the planks. that is why obama is telling me what he is going to do, and i have seen what he is going to do. i want a guy that will go after the guy who came after us. 9/11 said a lot. >> thank you, kevin. now we go to steve in the debate hall. >> leon emerson and samantha shepherd both here insi
